B12 Injections for Weight Loss
What is vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that your body cannot manufacture. It helps in a variety of physiological functions, such as the manufacture of red blood cells. Besides that, vitamin B12 helps break carbohydrates into fats and conversion of fat into energy.
The utility of Vitamin B12 has made it one of the most sought-after nutrients in diets. While it can be found in foods such as shellfish, eggs, and dairy products, there are other options such as B12 injections. At Arizona Specialized Gynecology, Joseph Brooks, MD, can help you manage your weight loss using periodical vitamin B12 injections.
Which is the better option for weight management?
One of the most significant benefits of B12 shots over vitamin-rich foods is that they are injected straight into the bloodstream. While a standard meal will have to pass through the digestive tract, B12 injections go directly to the bloodstream, where they are more readily absorbed.
How often should I get B12 injections for weight loss?
At Arizona Specialized Gynecology, Dr. Brooks is dedicated to helping you achieve your weight loss goals. Therefore, he will sit down with you and help you chart the way forward towards weight loss and determine the number of injections you require. He will offer a medical opinion that will help you schedule injections as per your goals.
There is no difference between a B12 and a regular injection. While Dr. Brooks may pressure the muscle or skin, everything else is pretty much the same. What’s more, there are no side effects to the procedure, and as such, you can get back to your daily routine immediately.
